Whether the motivation for remaining childfree is based on environmental beliefs or some other reasons, the reaction from others remains largely the same.

Nobody's Mother: Life without Kids, edited by Lynne Van Luven with a foreword by Shelagh Rogers, attempts to start the cultural conversation about this life choice by collecting essays (and a poem) by 21 women who define themselves with a variety of monikers: childless, childfree, even barren.
Voluntarily childfree women participated in a qualitative investigation in which semi-structured interviews, journals, and a focus group were utilized to capture their experience of stigmatization.
Enjoy your fireworks, I'm going to be inside, childfree, with as many coats and hats on as I want.
Being childfree isn't always disastrous NEXT WEEK'S PROBLEM
The paper uses this measure to compare the amount of time sole and couple parents have in childfree recreation.
The result, Childfree and Loving It, isn't an anti-child tirade.
BUT AN INCREASING NUMBER OF PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING TO ESCHEW THAT TIME-HONOURED FORMULA IN FAVOUR OF REMAINING CHILDFREE - MUCH TO THE CHAGRIN OF OTHERS.
The one hundred women in this study, whether childfree or not, in full-time or part-time employment or out of the workforce, reported the importance of flexible work, supportive workplaces, community services and cultural attitudes to how they chose to negotiate their varying life aspirations.
Whether you look at growing rates of childlessness, the aggressively childfree, the values expressed in social attitude surveys which show the declining importance to adult fulfilment of having children, or the increasing degree to which children are cared for by outside institutions, children have a diminished place in our culture.
Leslie Lafayette, founder of ChildFree Network, a California-based national newsletter for women childless by choice or chance, says childless - or as she puts it, ``child-free'' - women are still considered oddities in a society that favors adults with children.
